"Bee Sew Modern" Quilt Top Finish

My last Bee group of 2013 was "Bee Sew Modern" and ended back in September.  I chose the wonky pinwheel block by Greenleaf Goods.  You can go here  for her tutorial. I just love her finished quilt!  I changed the block size so I could get a little bit bigger finished quilt.  I had everyone use 5" background squares instead of 3.5" that was called for in the tutorial.  The block ended up being 18.5" unfinished. Here is mine:

And here is the finished quilt:

I really need to get busy and quilt some of my finished tops.  I'm getting too many of them :)  This one was suppose to be a Christmas present!  Obviously it didn't get to that point since I was sick so I have decided it will be my February goal for "A lovely Year of Finishes".  I hope to get it quilted and bound before the end of the month.  Wish me luck :)

Summer Solstice Quilt Top Finish

As I mentioned before, I have been pattern testing for Marelize from Stitch By Stitch.  That cute little stack of Union Station by Denyse Schmidt has finally become a quilt top.  I love it!

 I hope my fabric selection has done the pattern justice. I wanted the  fabric placement to help set the two blocks apart so not to get lost.  The unity of the solid corners helps with this as well.  Don't you just love it when it comes out as you planned? :)

This pattern has not been released yet as Marelize was waiting on me and her other pattern testers to get our feedback.  I will post a link for you when it goes up for sale.


Marelize now has her pattern listed in her Crafsty shop!!  Please go here to purchase :)

Sunday Stash

This weeks stash pick  is one I should have posted months ago.  I won this bundle way back at the end of September. Amy @ Diary of A Quilter had a sponsored giveaway from Connecting Threads.  I have always wanted to try out their fabric and thread.  They have such pretty collections at great prices as well as cute quit kits.

This collection is called "Heather's Garden".  I chose it from the 3 that were offered since they are the colors in my home.  I'm not sure what I'm going to make yet but I am anxious to sew with it.  Maybe something for our bed.  We have had the same quilt for the last 6 years--time for a change :)  Any suggestions?

Thank you to Amy and her sponsor for such a generous giveaway.  I love it!
